Hilton Ballroom Wedding

Sarah + Dustin = Meant to Be!

An Amazing April Wedding



Sarah and Dustin's wedding was one for the books!

For the bridal bouquet, Sarah chose a handheld with stems and some texture with a spill drop shape. It included wax flowers, heather, tulips, lizzy, ranunculus, and roses in the colors of peach, mauve, lavender, green, and deep wine/purple. The bridesmaids had bouquet's similar to Sarah's, but were more rounded. Dustin's boutonniere included two peach spray roses with peach ranunculus, heather, and wax flower. The groomsmen had boutonnieres with two spray roses, heather, wax flower, and greens.

The couple's ceremony took place at Lumen Christi Church in Mequon, where they were surrounded by many friends and family to say their "I do's". After, the wedding party took a trip downtown to the lakefront for a gorgeous shoot. They then continued on to the reception, held at the Hilton Ballroom in Downtown Milwaukee. There, the music, dancing, and love flowed throughout the night.

We were so happy to have been part of this couple's special day. Congrats to Sarah and Dustin, we wish you many years of memories and love!

There needs to be more winter weddings - you'll agree once you see Kelly and Gary's!

For Kelly's bridal bouquet, she choose a handheld with stems and some texture that included a lovely arrangement of roses, spray roses, white and silver pine, brunia, and mini pine cones (how cute!) in ivory, gray, and green. The two flower girls had bouquets like Kelly's but smaller while Gary's boutonniere included two ivory spray roses with pine cone and cedar. The flowers all tied perfectly into the time of year!

The couple said their "I do's" surrounded by family and friends at their church, St. James. They then continued their day to the reception at Hubbard Park Lodge, where much love, laughter, and dancing was present. Their entire day was captured beautifully by Jocelyn's Photography.

We were so happy to have been part of Kelly and Gary's winter wedding! Congrats to the lovely couple, here's to many years full of love and memories!

Green & White: The Wedding Trend at Pewaukee

Every year the trend changes for wedding flowers. This year was the year of the radiant orchid. Before that it was yellow and grey, and along the way mint also topped the popularity charts.  Not at the Pewaukee Bank of Memories.  This summer, four brides chose to combine white and green  flowers for the bouquets on their wedding day.


The first of the four couples, Stephanie and Jeremy, chose to have an intimate wedding that was rustic, earthy and simple and also included "good food" (Jeremy picked The Butler Inn, Pewaukee).  Stephanie chose to use green hydrangeas and white mini calla lilies for her bouquet, as well as her bridesmaids'.  She brought her own ribbon to us: a beautiful white and champagne brocade.  The gentlemen of the wedding party each sported a single calla lily and the ladies wore wrist corsages to match. 




The second couple was Richanda and Kris who desired an understated classic and vintage feel for their wedding at the Country Springs Hotel in Pewaukee.  The bridesmaids wore a light aqua dress and Richanda chose white and green flowers for her bouquets. White hydrangeas, white roses, and babies breath were used in the bridesmaids' bouquets and then green succulents were added to the brides bouquet -- magnificent!  The gentlemen each wore succulents as a bouttoniere and the ladies wore wrist corsages of babies breath and white roses.


The third couple, Maria and James, also held their wedding at the Country Springs Gazebo and the Meadowbrook room.  The white hydrangeas, white freesia, green gladiola blooms and green hypericum berries popped against the bridesmaids' aubergine dresses.  Maria added white peonies to her bouquet.  The color scheme carried through to the white freesia boutonnieres and wrist corsages with white spray roses, freesia and green hypericum berries.


And last but not least, Susan and Seth went for a rustic look with babies breath and burlap.  Their ceremony was held at St. Jacobi Congregational Church, a beautiful church built in Richfield in the 1800's.  Susan carried a full bouquet of white hydrangeas collared by babies breath and greens, while her granddaughter, her only attendant, carried a matching but smaller bouquet. Both bouquets were wrapped in burlap and twine. The men in the bridal party each wore a white rose, accompanied by some babies breath and wrapped in twine. The Susan's daughter wore a wrist corsage to match which also had a twine bow. Susan made her own pew cones out of burlap which then held masses of white babies breath.

Each of these weddings made use of the wonderful white and green color combination, yet each contained a different bridesmaid dress color and variation of flower types used in the bouquets, boutineers and corsages. And each was absolutely beautiful in its own unique way!

We loved working with each of these four couples and we thank them for trusting Bank of Memories in Pewaukee to provide the flowers for such a momentous occasion. Congratulations to all of you -- we wish each of you a long and happy wedded life!
